Seamless efficiency

Create the envelope of the structure, build the walls, define the roof, and then simply export the profiles.

TrueBuild Layout

Automatically determines the placement and profile of all required structural members.

TrueBuild® Layout software enables you to quickly and accurately define the shape of the construction project being built. And if ever a user wishes to go back into Layout, it’s just a simple click on the layout itself – again a seamless efficiency.

As part of our seamless experience, the user can open the TrueBuld Layout program from within TrueBuild Management and immediately begin inputting the layout. The software performs a preliminary liftoff to generate the envelope of the structure and get a more accurate quote.


A single change to the layout populates associated changes throughout saving the designer time and reducing mistakes.

Layout Features


Highquality 3D views in a completely customizable windows environment. Users have complete control to natively display 2D and 3D views on individual monitors, split side by side or stacked in any desired configuration.


Automatically match roof planes with the match fascia options that allow the user to adjust planes by referencing the heel, cantilever or overhang in the layout.

Cad File Integration

Import, Trace and Save .dwg and .dxf CAD files. Export 2D or 3D CAD files of layouts.

Define Groups

Create truss groups in layout that can be shared down the line in Truss, Batch Cutting and Management.


Changes made to the ceiling properties automatically populate changes throughout the entire three-dimensional model automatically. Ceilings and truss profiles automatically adjust to the new specified ceiling specifications

Layout Features

Automatically cap trusses too tall for fabrication or shipping based on user defined presets.

Add quality 3D images to your layout output in plan finishing. The user has complete control on the angle and details shown on the layout and can include section views of the structure as well where necessary. The 3D details automatically update on the plan as changes are made to the layout.

User defined constraints allow roof truss openings to be created and passed seamlessly to final truss design.

Create detailed notes in plan finishing detailing such as wall length, width, height that automatically update with the layout as changes are made.

Create user defined hipsets through preset controls that can be shared among other designers with one file.

User sees graphically where connections are being made and has the option to connect or disconnect trusses where appropriate so that the correct details are passed to the engineering program for design.
